 LAS VEGAS (AP) -Suspended NFL player Adam ``Pacman'' Jones surrendered and was released on $20,000 bail early Friday on felony charges in a strip club melee that preceded a triple shooting.
Jones is scheduled to return for a July 27 appearance in Las Vegas Justice Court, his lawyer Robert Langford said Friday. A booking photograph released by police showed the Tennessee Titans cornerback cut his hair, shedding his distinctive dreadlocks.
He will plead not guilty to two felony charges of coercion stemming from allegations he threatened to kill Minxx club employees and that he bit a bar bouncer, his lawyer said.
If convicted, Jones faces a maximum of 12 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Two associates - Sadia Morrison and Robert Reid - were scheduled to turn themselves in later Friday, Langford said. They also face felony charges in the Feb. 19 melee at the club several blocks off the Las Vegas Strip during the NBA All-Star Game weekend.
``He was in and out around 2 a.m.,'' said Lt. Jason Letkiewicz, a Las Vegas police watch commander.
After his release, Jones flew to Nashville, Tenn., his lawyer said.
The charges in Las Vegas have cast more doubt on Jones' playing status with the Titans. Since he was drafted in April 2005, he has been arrested six times - although he has not been convicted of any crimes.
Jones has been involved in at least 11 separate police investigations, authorities say, and is currently sought by Atlanta-area police for questioning in a shooting early Monday after a fight at a strip club there.
